The AutoCAD Mechanical Essentials training course teaches students about the indispensable core topics required to use the AutoCAD® Mechanical software. Through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum, students acquire the knowledge needed to accelerate the mechanical design process.

 

With specific tools for creating and manipulating geometry, automatically acquiring bills of materials, generating mechanical components, and performing design calculations, the AutoCAD Mechanical software offers significant productivity gains that the student learns to maximise.

Topics Covered:

  • Identify the main interface elements, their setup and what Help information is available, and to create and use drawing template files.
  • Describe the object property management system in which layers are configured and the tools for manipulating layers.
  • Describe the workflows for organizing drawing geometry and create a Mechanical structure in a drawing by creating components, component views, and folders.
  • Describe the core mechanical design tools of rectangle, hatch, fillet, chamfer, holes, slots, and threads and how to use them to create and modify geometry in your drawings.
  • Modify and edit drawing objects by creating multiple offset copies, scaling them with separate values for the X and Y direction, or using a power command.
  • Insert industry standard parts into your assembly designs.
  • Create production-ready drawings in model space and layouts of structured and non-structured geometry and insert title blocks and borders.
  • Notate a drawing through the creation and editing of dimensions, hole charts, fits lists, and mechanical symbols.

Explain how to create and edit a bill of materials, parts list, and balloons.

  • Describe the tools that you can use to verify whether or not the standard parts or custom parts within your design meet or exceed the requirements for operational use.
  • Exchange data between CAD systems in the form of Mechanical DWG™ and IGES files and create Mechanical drawings using Inventor Link.
  • Create a custom drafting standard and drawing template that includes the configuration settings for layers, object properties, symbols, text, BOMs, parts list, balloons, and other annotation tools.

Prerequisites:

  • This course is designed for users who are new to the AutoCAD Mechanical software.
  • A basic understanding of mechanical drafting or design.
  • A working knowledge of the AutoCAD® software.
  • A working knowledge of the Microsoft® Windows® 10 or 11 operating system.

Training Guide Contents

This AutoCAD: Essentials (Fundamentals – Part 1) training course is designed for those using AutoCAD with a Windows operating system. This guide is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac software.

The objective of AutoCAD: Essentials (Fundamentals – Part 1) is to enable you to create, modify, and work with a 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software.

This course covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The course begins with learning the basic tools for creating and editing 2D drawings. It then continues to explore the tools used to annotate drawings by adding text, hatching, dimensions, and tables. More advanced tools, such as working with blocks and setting up layouts, are introduced to improve your efficiency with the software. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the essential tools and concepts, such as:

  • Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface
  • Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools
  • Organizing drawing objects on layers
  • Using reusable symbols (blocks)
  • Preparing a layout to be plotted
  • Adding text, hatching, and dimensions

The AutoCAD: Essentials course is not recommended for users that have completed the AutoCAD: Fundamentals course, as the Essentials course makes up Part 1 of the Fundamentals course.

Prerequisites:

  • A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology.
  • A working knowledge of your operating system.
